Oregon's Climate Action Plan (OCAP) turns one
March 30, 2021

Just over a year ago, Oregon Governor Kate Brown signed Executive Order 20-04, now called the Oregon Climate Action Plan, directing numerous state agencies to incorporate climate protections into their agency planning and programs. One year later, the Oregon Climate Action Plan coalition, a diverse group of stakeholders representing Oregon’s environmental justice, youth, labor, business, advocacy, and culturally-specific communities, has released this progress report for Governor Brown, and the agencies, boards and commissions charged with turning OCAP into reality.

The report assesses one year of progress and setbacks in six main areas:

  1. Transportation
  2. Cap & reduce
  3. Clean energy
  4. Clean buildings
  5. Public health
  6. Natural & working lands
